We White Folks Are Apparently Very Bummed Out About No Longer Being America's Majority

Damn. Now I'm all in a twist. There are three separate stories in The New York Times today dealing directly or indirectly with my people. White people. I think I need some kind of a do-over on that whole "my people" question. Let me explain.

First there's a story quoting Census officials saying that the United States is becoming what the demographers apparently intend to call a "plurality" nation. That means pretty soon nobody will be in the majority any more.

That means us. White people. C'mon. Who do you think they're talking about? Who was ever in the majority? So who's not going to be soon? Now we're a "plurality" instead? Isn't that just as good? Yeah, right. Is being ambitious just as good as being rich? Last time I checked, they only took money at the grocery store. If you're the majority, you run things. When you're demoted to a plurality, you wish you could still run things.

Then there's a story about Hispanic leaders telling the Congress to get something done about comprehensive immigration reform ... OR ELSE.

"We have worked to build our power and now we intend to use it," one Latino leader is quoted saying.

Yikes.

Next there's an op-ed piece by Charles Blow, who is probably the most incisive interpreter of social statistics in the country today, writing about the "browning" (I might say un-whitening) of America and whether it's OK now for white people to bitch and moan about being an oppressed minority.

"When will public displays of white pride become culturally acceptable?" Blow asks. "Will they forever be freighted with the weight of history -- tantamount to gloating about privilege? Or should all racial and cultural pride be viewed more or less the same?"

Oh my God. He's being so sweet. Did you pick up on his use of the third person plural there: "Will they..." Now The New York Times calls us "they." We are so toast. When the major media start calling you "they," when they start feeling sorry for you and telling you they understand why you're so touchy, you are social political toast.

Blow's piece talks about some nitwit shallow-end-of-the-gene-pool white-pride movement on certain college campuses called "Youth for Western Civilization," in which I assume the definition of Western Civilization is probably taken mainly from John Wayne movies, whether the youth realize it or not. Blow gets all patronizing about how maybe non-whites need to be more understanding of this type of white behavior.

You know where this road leads, right? They start feeling sorry for us. They understand us. They have empathy. You and I both know what's on down that road. White-face comedy. They'll have whole movies about ditzy white chicks named Brittany and Tiffany who make white people look like imbeciles every time they open their mouths. Oh, wait. We already have that. No, correction: THEY already have that.

So what's my do-over? More white pride action? Geezers for Western Civilization? I don't think so. Count me out on that one, bro'. I don't see a future there.

Here is the do-over I suggest. Do you know of a way that anybody can prove you are white? You remember the old one-drop theory, right? Sure you do: we invented it. One drop of black blood makes you black. Well, we've all got a drop somewhere.

As I understand it, the law says I am whatever ethnicity I say I am. So I'm about to start saying. Now all I have to decide is which box to check on all those nosy forms I have to fill out. Shall I be black? Hispanic? How about "other"?

THEY can't stop me. I can be whatever I want to be. And now that being white no longer carries the clout of being the majority, I need to do the math on some of the negatives still implied.

I'm bailin' man. I intend to un-pass. And by the way, if I do pass you on campus where you have your little white pride booth set up out there selling gingerbread cookies made to look like black people, do me a favor, will you? Act like you don't know me. Just say to yourself, "There's another white brother, trying to un-pass." I'll do the same for you when your time comes.

All you poor little ole white people. Our hearts just break because your race is becoming the minority in America.

You geebos have already ruled this freaking country with an iron fist and whip for about 300 years or so. You must be afraid that the people you reviled, oppressed, lynched, murdered and enslaved are going to return the favor.

So now you white dolts are attacking Jim because, like any good white conservative knows, when the news is bad, blame the media...or the nearest non-white, non-Christian available.

Nothing is ever a white conservative's fault...

If you want to stay the majority then quit having mixed babies...can't "they" control where their peepees go??? P.S. Mexicans don't mix with Blacks...only Puerto Ricans do. But Mexicans are already mixed- we have European blood...either French or Spanish. As is here in the U.S., only the Indians are pure blood. See you learn something new every day....

It's the Newtown massacre. Not the Newton massacre.

I was sitting at work when social media outlets began flashing "Breaking News". I then found out that a massacre had taken place in an elementary school. What they seem to know at this moment is that a 20 year old man with two pistols began the massacre, killing at least 18 children and a total of 27 people. Apparently he killed one of his own parents. The motive behind the killing is, at present, unknown. The gun lobby will immediately remind us all that ‘guns do not kill people; people kill people’, and will insist that nothing needs to be done. But we have to ask ourselves, beyond the issue of gun control, what motivates someone to carry out such a massacre and whether there were any signs of a problem. All too often the signs are there but no one says anything or is prepared to take action. It is sort of like that notor ious incident from New York City decades ago where a woman was killed and neighbors watched. It subsequently was discovered that those watching each expected someone else to take action, thereby relieving themselves of the burden/responsibility.Did people see the signs with this murderer? Did they feel that they were in no position to say or do anything? In terms of gun control, i am actually in favor of people having the right to guns but i want to know why is it so easy to get them? Think about it this way. In order to drive you have take a written exam and then you have to actually take a driving test. If you do not pass, you do not get to drive. Simple as that. Rarely are cars used as weapons, although it has been known to have happened.Yet guns are weapons, so why is there not a more stringent requirement in getting gun permits and buying guns? I am not saying that this would necessarily have prevented the Newton massacre, but I frequently wonder whether the reality of scrutiny might just discourage a few angry people from taking that step towards disaster. For now, i grieve with the families. I imagine, with a shudder, what it would have been like had i received a call, when my daughter was in elementary school, telling me of a shooting, not to mention telling me that she had lost her life.A country with the history of the ‘wild West’ and a gun culture seems not to be able to escape the consequences, regardless of how tragic.

Buncha us old white guys were sitting around having lunch together today, and somebody mentioned that New York Times article and somebody else said yeah, he'd seen that. Then somebody else said the banana creme pie was sure good today. And another guy told us where he was going to spend the holidays, and we all agreed that was a nice place. Then somebody pointed out that the vacation guy would be away on December 21st, the End of the World Day according to the Maya calendar. And I said if you're not going to eat all that pie do you mind if I help myself? And another fellow said he was going to spend the holidays some other place, I forget where. But we all said that was a nice place, too.

So you can pretty much see see how bummed we all were about whatever it was the Times reported that you kind of re-reported in your column.

You're on to something with this fake ethnicity scam Jim. After all, Elizabeth Warren scammed her way to the front of the employment line at Harvard, and on to the Senate, by convincing a bunch of brain dead New England liberals that her family "lore" of Indian blood somewhere in the lineage was "probably" true. This made her irresistible, didn't it?  A double category affirmative action hire/candidate. Hell, if she had tossed in a fake degenerative disability, she could have hit the holy grail of liberal activism: a woman (likely true), a minority (likely a scam), and a disability (hard to disprove).

There's something sadly retro about this column, like an aging hippie who just can't turn lose of his love beads or Doors albums. I wonder, Jim if you've talked to anybody less than, say, thirty lately? I'm thinking not, because you spend so many column inches fussing over the old white folks you imagine fill the ranks of the Tea Party.

I know you miss the good old days, Jim, when there were real stories to report on boycotts and such. (Or did all that happen just before your career started?) Get out and do a little reporting, for heaven's sakes. Even pundits can't coast forever.

That statistic has little meaning for most people. Since increasingly where you live and shop, where your kids go to school, the people you see outside work, are homogenous, you really do not care. Even if you go to a restaurant or market with a racially diverse clientele, it is very likely they are homogenous by the big kahuna, income. Witness the supposedly big transformation in Dallas County. I have been in city for 17 years. Different faces, same screwed up performance. Same thing at DISD. We have gone from white to Hispanic leadership. Is it really any different? I could have kept a newspaper article on a DISD screw up from 1995 and planted it in the 2012 DMN. Other than substituting names, it is the same story. If anything, technology makes it now more possible to identify, link up, and socialize with people just like ourselves. We can even get our news from people that think just like we do. Personally I think what happens racially 30 or 60 years will make very little difference. Now old vs. young, that is the real story.

Relax, people, lighten up. Just do as I do: paste Jim's good Germanname and shotgun-wielding cracker photo atop random news bits fromStormfront and drop them into various minority forums.

I like to think of it as race mixing.

The only people who care about this are old fart baby boomers who lived during the Civil Rights "Mississippi Burning" Era.  Younger generations born after that period, especially people under 30, could care less about what color most Americans are.  When we are done fucking each other, none of our great great great grandchildren will look like any of us.

ASIA FOR THE ASIANS, AFRICA FOR THE AFRICANS, WHITE-MAJORITY COUNTRIES FOR EVERYBODY!

Naive, sheltered, uninformed white-guilt propagandists like Schutze says the racism problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white-majority country and ONLY into white-majority countries.

The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve the racism problem by bringing in millions of third-worlders and  "assimilating" with them.

"Progressives" and naive whtie-guilt propagandists like Schutze say the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white-majority country and ONLY white-majority countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.

What if I said this racism problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black-majority country and ONLY into black-majority countries?

How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a racism problem, but that I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?

But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white

@GuitarPlayer "White folks" don't vote as a block, so you can't say they "win" or "lose".  If they all did, they would win, and win every time.  In fact, they are just about the only group that doesn't vote as a block...

@gkarjr because that is typical naive white-guilt fantasizing that completely ignores reality.

@GuitarPlayer @cheeseburger you are a dolt. I am white and try my best to vote for the person I think will do the best job.

Yeah, how else do we explain the entire legacy of Reagan, the so-called "southern strategy," which was the white strategy: Stir 'em up, get 'em scared, you can get 'em to vote for dumb actors and preppie deserters, as long as they're white.

You are too easy, willie. Better take your B.P. meds, now before you blow a gasket.

Anyhow. Where did I ever say it was bad? I didn't. I am, however, a realist. The demographics are changing in the U.S.A. and that's not going to stop. Ever. It's the way this country was founded and set up. As others have pointed out, people who are considered "White" today were discriminated against as mongrels just a generation ago.

My point was, go find yourself a "White" country (whatever that means to you) if you can, and GO THERE if off-white people frighten you so much.

Thanks for proving that you have shitty reading comprehension, naive white-guilt libtard!

1. I'm not from Norway. My parents were. I was born here in Texas. I am a US citizen. My parents are dead and I have no family in Norway.

2. Norway, like all white-majority countries, is getting overrun with muslim

/African immigrants, who are committing shitloads of rapes and other violent crimes.

SO TELL ME, naive white-guilt reality-ignoring libtard, WHY IS IT SO BAD FOR WHITE MAJORITY NATIONS TO MAINTAIN THEIR WHITE MAJORITIES?

TheCredibleHulk

@williehorton 

Simple solution: Move back to Norway.

That would probably make you and a lot more people happy.

This may come as a shock to someone as naive and stupid as you, but I wasn't alive 500 or even 100 years ago and I had nothing to do with the colonizing of the USA. My family immigrated from Norway in 1964. Now all white-majority European countries are getting swamped by Muslim/African immigration. Sweden, Denmark, Norway, and the UK now have major problems with rape committed by Muslim/African immigrants raping white women. Of course you will just probably deny all that, just like the NAIVE UNINFORMED feel-good white-guilt libtard that you are!

@TheCredibleHulk - that's right, I'm WHITE! I revel in my "whiteness"!!!

Now, why is it so bad for white-majority countries to maintain their white majorities? Especially since whites are a tiny minority on earth. Do you advocate for any Asian countries to have their majorities swamped by a bunch of black Africans or mestizo Mexicans? Do you advocate for any black African countries having their majorities swamped by a bunch of Chinese immigrants?
